Go early in the day, on a weekday if you can, to take a photo under the LOVE sign. The sign gets very crowded in the afternoon/evening and hustlers try to take your money if you want a photo with the statue.

Taking pic below the LOVE sign is very teenager-ish... and I am way past that age... so that did not attract me... the sign looks rather small and unimpressive in person.. But the park is pretty even without the fountain running (it was early spring).

It probably is a lot better with the fountain going in the warmer months, but that didn't stop us from taking pictures. Best time to go is in the morning so the sun is behind you.

Well, took my wife to Philly for our Anniversary and we finally made it over to Love Park. Unfortunately, our Anniversary is in Winter so attractions like a park aren't at their peak attractiveness. It was fun, but we were immediately confronted by several people wanting to snap pictures for you, for a tip of course, but it makes you... More

I've always seen it in movies so it was on my "things to do" in Philly. Found it fine, a lil crazy to get to. It's really a few snaps for pics and done. I told my family to stay in car cause there's no parking anywhere near there. I jumped out of car on the corner took 6 pics... More

That's about it. Go there, see the LOVE sign, snap a few shots, move on. There's not much else to see except the people seeing if they can take a photo of you - for some money of course. It does make a nice photo spot though.

We went to Love Park because of the Christmas Market. It was nice, lots of vendors. It was a good 30 minutes to 45 minutes fun. We also took some photo with the LOVE statue.

As a complete newbie to Philly, my friend took me to the Christmas Village in Love Park. The center of the park was decorated with a tall, brilliantly lit Christmas Tree. There were booths selling traditional German fare, mulled cider, chocolates, trinkets and jewelry. The cider was tasty and quickly warmed me up. I purchased a great necklace from one... More

Most of the year, Love Park is great for about five minutes. You can admire the big sign and the fountain, then you can admire the view up the Ben Franklin Parkway toward the Art Museum. Here ends your tour of Love Park. It's a great five minutes, but don't spend much more. Head up the Ben Franklin Parkway to... More

Nothing really special, just a place you can take photo with the "LOVE" landmark. There is Market right now, but nothing really special that you can't buy from the mall.
